Giving Back

We build communities by working together and giving back

Cooperative partnerships help further The Expedition School’s mission. Through these collaborative efforts – we hope to capture the audience of the community at large while simultaneously inspiring volunteerism and environmental stewardship.

Official Sponsor of Down Home Ranch Special Olympians

The Expedition School is proud to sponsor the incredible athletes at Down Home Ranch! These athletes train biweekly at The Expedition School, Austin, TX – in Stand Up Paddling and Kayaking.

Ways to Give

Your support of The Expedition School Fund 501(c)(3) will help provide outdoor programming to our adaptive populations. Our goals are to inspire and empower individuals with transformational outdoor experiences which focus on health, wellness, orientation, mobility, self determination, sensory efficiency, social interaction skills, and leadership.



Environmental Stewardship

Lady Bird Lake is described as the crown jewel of Austin, and for good reason. With miles of trails, places to picnic or play with your dog, Stand Up Paddling (SUP), canoeing and kayaking access, and close proximity to Downtown, Lady Bird Lake exemplifies the active/laid back Austin lifestyle.

The Expedition School supports ongoing clean-ups of Lady Bird Lake:

  • We implement environmental stewardship with every group. To date, The Expedition School has cleaned over 30 tons of trash 15 tons of recycling out of Lady Bird Lake and along its shoreline and parkland.
  • We sponsor community wide bi-monthly shoreline and lake clean ups by donating our paddle fleet to keep our waterway free of trash and debris. Join us for the next clean up at The Expedition School! Go to the Keep Austin Beautiful website to register for the event.

We hope to see you at our next community event!
